APRA releases new quarterly performance statistics for authorised deposit-taking institutions

Tuesday 28 May 2013


The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) today released a new publication, Quarterly Authorised Deposit-taking Institution (ADI) Performance, for the March 2013 quarter.

The publication has been released following consultation on proposed changes to APRA’s bank, and credit union and building society, statistical publications. It contains aggregate statistics for banks, credit unions and building societies, previously published in the Quarterly Bank Performance statistics and Quarterly Credit Union and Building Society Performance statistics as well as, for the first time, data on mutual ADIs.

The publication also includes an additional 69 ADI statistics, compared to the discontinued quarterly bank, and credit union and building society, performance statistics. These additional statistics include statistics on capital adequacy, asset quality and liquidity.

The new publication provides users with access to more ADI statistics on a more timely basis, within a single publication. This will promote a better understanding of the ADI industry and assist research and public discussion on ADI policy issues.

The March 2013 edition of the Quarterly ADI Performance shows that ADIs’ assets were $3.64 trillion as at 31 March 2013, an increase of $154 billion from the previous year. Net profit after tax was $26.6 billion for the year ended 31 March 2013, an increase of $67 million from the previous year. The total capital adequacy ratio of ADIs was 12.1 per cent as at 31 March 2013, an increase from 11.9 per cent in the previous year.

Copies of the March 2013 Quarterly ADI Performance publication are available on the APRA's website.

It oversees banks, credit unions, building societies, general insurance and reinsurance companies, life insurance, private health insurers, friendly societies, and most members of the superannuation industry. APRA currently supervises institutions holding $6 trillion in assets for Australian depositors, policyholders and superannuation fund members.
